been bringing us some new details this morning. she's been speaking with law enforcement. poppy, how sophisticated do they say this setup is? >> reporter: very sophisticateed, relatively speaking, for someone who is not believed to be an expert this at this. they told me, a law enforcement official just told me this morning, randi, this is a unique situation. not something that they typically see. that he showed some expertise in setting this up. this was certainly not, quote, crude. what they also told me that was very disturbing is that the explosive devices found in holmes' apartment are victim-initiated devices, ie, booby traps, that they would be set off by people going into the apartment, so likely first responders. they do not believe that these, basically, ieds, pbombs, are tid to any timers. that is good news for people in this area. but they also say a big concern would be an ensuing fire from any detonation. and here's why. those robots they sent in yesterday captured video of jars with black powder, what law enforcement officials believe to be liquid accelerant. that woul

in the 18 to 24 age group were out of room according to u.s. congress joint economic committee. that is only going to get worse as thousands of soldiers return from the war in afghanistan over the next few years. are companies doing all they can to hire veterans? is something else at play. we spent barbara starr to detroit for the biggest job fair in the country for veterans. >> reporter: the sign says it all, start your job search here. employers from around the country came to detroit saying they are ready to hire veterans. we met 28-year-old navy vet luke marang. >> i look around for a job, i would say, for the past six months maybe. i haven't gotten lucky. so it's pretty rough. >> most of your buddies looking for work? >> i probably know more without a job than i know with a job. >> young veterans like luke, who have served since 9/11, had an unemployment rate of over 29% last year. >> i was a waiter for three years, so that was $2.65 plus tips. sometimes i didn't even make $7 an hour. >> cath stone of the ohio national guard says some employers don't want to hire guard troops. >> one of

of cuts. i think it is 20% of the budget and taking half of these cuts. the u.s. military also spends as much as the next 14 countries combined. we have a which rt that shows us. tell me where we can afford this military. >> it is a good question. first of all, i do think that the military, the defense budget can take cuts just like i think every agency is going to have to and by the way we'll have to make cuts in the welfare and medicaid and medicare programs or we'll never make any progress. when even the president's own national security advisers and defense secretaries say that this is dangerous, it could be catastrophic for a national security, that worries me. so, yeah, we can make cuts. to make such a disproportionate amount of those cuts that have to come on the defense budget, i don't think it is very wise. >> i think much of it has to do with political calculus. it is never politically wise or popular to say you're cutting defense spending even when there is fat and waste everywhere. >> yeah, there is. there is a lot of waste. what leon panetta is saying, we can get rid of a

at clemson university and steven moore an editorial writer at the wall street journal. thanks for joining us. doesn't it scream for compromise. >> it absolutely screams for compromise. there is no way you will get anything through unless you also compromise on the other end and have some kind of spending reduction. not in the major stuff, not in the most crucial stuff, but we have to make cuts and take losses >> do you think the republicans, steven moore, will be able to agree to something, anything that will allow them to keep their pledges not to raise taxes? that's going to be the political problem for republicans. >> christine, by the way, it is very appropriate you're addredr in red for this discussion. i think the republicans when i talk to them and interviewed the ways and means committee chairman that writes the tax laws in the house and says, look, we're willing to raise revenues, we just want to do it in a way that fixes the tax system in a broad based way and one just slight correction on what you saw earlier, christine, all of of these government agencies will take pretty deep cu

stimulus money to u.s. companies and our trading partners in europe and north america but rather we permitted the chinese products h that stimulus money. i would point out the chinese with their stimulus money limited the sales to their domestic sellers so on a net basis, we lost out. >> isn't it true that both of these candidates basically bought the conventional wisdom from wall street and the corporate suite that we need to be free, free trade, free trade, free trade. these jobs are going to go, they're not going to come back, but something better's going to come our way down the road. they kind of both sing the same song. >> they both have gone through an evolution. when mr. obama was running for president in 2008 he said we have to do something about producing more domestic energy so we import less. we have to do something about the terrible trade deficit with china. but then when he became president, he really walked away from those positions because of his political base, his supporters and so forth. now we're seeing the same thing in mr. romney. candidate romney running for
